    I guess he didn’t want to win.

    He obviously didn't believe he could beat out our Qb's.

    He prefers being the next Eli Manning - best college season was a #13 finish but earned $235 million in NFL contracts alone - over (for example) Jacob Coker, who won a national title but never made a dime in the NFL. Peyton Manning didn't prioritize college titles either. Otherwise, he would have gone to Washington, Miami, Alabama, Nebraska (who would have changed their offense for him), Colorado (ditto), Notre Dame (same), Georgia Tech or FSU, all of whom had won recent national titles (remember this was the old system where Washington/Miami and Colorado/Georgia Tech shared titles). Or he could have gone to Florida who was obviously going to win one soon (which they did Manning's junior year). Instead he went to Tennessee, who last won a title in 1951.

    The Mannings care about money. The Manning clan infamously forced their way out of San Diego merely because you can earn a lot more endorsement money in New York. So yes, you can basically chalk the Manning's choosing Texas - who hasn't won a title or had a first round draft pick on offense since Vince Young gave them both circa the 2005 season - to Texas oil money. NIL folks. Plain as day. Let's see Saban call them out. But you know he won't because he only goes after easy targets like the Aggies.

    Of course this has absolutely nothing to do with Texas oil money and NIL right? Of course it doesn't ...

    Funny thing, Tennessee won a National Title..the year AFTER Manning left. If I remember correctly, the QB who led the Vols to a NC that season was Tee Martin.

    I guess we all have our armchair opinions. Mine: shoot for the best QB every other year and get a really good 3* in the alternating years. Gives you time to develop a great QB with 2+ years of playing time and develop a good QB as #2. Plus you always would have a young 5* to jump in if they are that good.

    Hate it for us, but Texas needs him more than we do. I do also hate the fact that he will bring elite WRs to Texas. Georgia could use more of those.

    No different than Eli to Ole Miss. Eli had his reasons just like whatever Arch’s reasons are. The bottom line is Arch will lead Texas to three middling bowls and take his hype train to the NFL while our equally talented QBs will be competing with one another against elite defensive talent on a daily basis while getting better as they go and leading our Dawgs to the playoffs.

    Disappointed to not see the character issue raised concerning Sarkisian. That should have been front and center. 50/50 chance he won’t be there by the time Manning joins. Either by firing or by another DUI.

    Guess I offended a Peyton, or a Manning fan, by stating the simple truth 🤣😂🤣
